… A WAREHOUSE OPERATIVE

… A WAREHOUSE OPERATIVE

I manage stock movements around the service centre, including equipment cleaning, recycling, storage and inspections.  We have thousands of items on site, all tracked on our IT system.

I can take pride in knowing that what I do is valued by a lot of people.  The equipment is used to help our service users stay independent, so it’s important work.

The warehouse team is great, and we work closely with the other onsite teams too.  It’s a fantastic atmosphere.   

The hours are reliable and at normal working times (8.30am to 5pm, Monday to Friday).  I usually spend the mornings cleaning used equipment, then the afternoons managing warehouse or stock related tasks, so it’s a varied day.

Sometimes if there’s extra demand, I help out with delivering items to users.  This gives me the chance to see how much people appreciate our work.

I get paid more than I did doing a similar job before, and it’s nice to know I’m doing something worthwhile.  I hope you enjoy it as much as me.
